Bill and Vicky Stewart, the owners of Vamp & Tramp, a well-known bookshop based in Birmingham, Alabama that deals only in artists’ books, will visit UCR Library on March 2, 2017.

They will display a large number of their current stock in Rivera Library, Room 140 from 9:30 a.m. until 11:00 a.m. All books on display will also be available for purchase.

This will be a very hands-on event where all attendees will be able to experience artists’ books as they are meant to be used. Both Bill and Vicky have an amazing inventory and an impressive knowledge of the genre. They enjoy interacting with students and sharing their knowledge.

Attendees will be able to vote for their favorite book in the display, which UCR Library will purchase for Special Collections & University Archives and make available for student and faculty use in SCUA.
